We were lucky enough to watch a dress rehearsal of our Kapahaka at our assembly today. Their commitment and passion was evident in their performance. Good luck for your performance at the Cultural Festival on Monday night.
Congratulations to our Spreydon Literacy Quiz team that took on the challenge in this years Christchurch South Literacy Quiz held at Somerfield School last night.
They did an amazing job. 12th place.
Well done to Luke, Rima, Jae, Oliver and Vanessa.
A big thank you to the Spreydon PTA for making these children a hot chocolate this morning to celebrate their success.
Happy Birthday Spreydon School.
The School Council and Miss Wilson delved into the history books in the last few weeks so they could share some highlights of our history at our whole school assembly today.
Spreydon School celebrated 144 years with a cake and a wristband for all children so they can proudly wear the Spirit of Spreydon Values everyday. The School also showed their true colours by coming dressed in an Olympic theme. It may have been a coincidence that New Zealand won a medal during our passionate singing of the Nation Anthem. Thank you to the PTA for organising the mufit day.
As we are celebrating Success this term as our value we would like to know when children are succeeding outside of the school so we too can acknowledge and celebrate their Success.
Please feel free to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their achievement and if you wish a photo.
This week the Canterbury DHB kicked off a ‘care around the clock’ campaign to raise awareness of the fact that you can call your usual general practice number 24/7 and when they’re closed, a team of nurses is available to answer your call. The nurses provide free health advice, and if you need to be seen urgently by a doctor, they can tell you what to do and where to go.
It’s always important that people access the most appropriate health care. In most cases this is provided by general practice teams, even after hours.Make your GP team your first call 24/7After-hours (when the practice is closed) a team of nurses is available to give free health advice. If you need to be seen urgently, they can tell you what to do and where to go.It’s easy – phone your usual General Practice number 24/7Put your family doctor’s phone number in your contacts in your phone – then you’ll have it at the ready whenever you need it – any time of day or night.
When a child is unwell it's always good to seek medical attention sooner, rather than later. It’s best to phone your own general practice team any time of the day or night. If a child does need to have an appointment, most practices in Canterbury have free consultations for those under 13.
